How to be a Berliner!?

To give you some help in discovering the hidden gems of this lovable city, I joined forces with Lena. As a networking queen and a publisher of travel guides (and a real Berliner ;) we created a semi-serious dinner to how to "become" a real Berliner and where to find them.

How to be a Berliner!?
Workshop: How to be a Berliner!?

The IDEA: Up to 8 people from all over the world AND BERLIN come together. We welcome you with a original drink from Berlin – social Berlin beer from Quartiermeister and BRLO. German bread and more will be offered as a snack, but we will also enclose, where you find awesome bakeries (because we also LOVE bread, not only toast ;). Other topics are: Where to find the best food, and also how to survive as vegetarian in Berlin.

ANOTHER topic: What are German stereotypes? Germans love rules. For example, every house has at least four different garbage cans: plastic and metal, paper, organic waste, and general garbage. In which Berlin district you can find this stereotype most, we will also enclose during the dinner.

AND of course: We will introduce you to things to try, discover and do in Berlin; from bike rides along the Berlin Wall to the art collection and history in the Boros bunker.


We are going to meet in the Schudomastraße – you only have walk 150 meter from the S Bahnstation Sonnenallee to my house. The apartment is in the third floor and don't worry there is an elevator. Its my beautiful home, which you can also check out on Airbnb ;). We will sit around my big wooden table with candles in my space living room spending soft light, enjoying delicious handmade food, a glass of your fav wine in your hand, surrounded by interesting people from all over the world. We hosted this kind of dinner at this venue already several times and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

About us


Ich bin ein Berliner! Berta is full of energy, keen and cheerful. She is truly a Berliner, though never hesitant to get out. This is what friends have said when asked to describe me, and I cannot argue. I was born in Berlin just 35 years ago and grew up moving several times around Germany. Even after living in South Africa, Canada and Peru, I was drawn back to my birthplace. Since 2016 I am the publisher of the travel guides BertaBerlin and a travel blogger. In my travel guides, inconspicuously entitled BertaBerlin, I discovers city walks all over Berlin and write about the hidden gems.


If you want to find more hidden gems of Berlin, check out my folding maps BertaBerlin and QueerBerlin. They are available in well-chosen locations all over Charlottenburg, Neukölln, Kreuzberg, Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin and online.
